Most people who have used more than one generation of ISE have given up on the
built-in editor and use an external editor instead. This gives you a consistent user
interface that doesn't break with every new ISE version and allows you to spend more
time on designing and less on learning to work around new "improvements" in
the user interface.
I don't think the ISE text editor is very high on Xilinx's priority list when it comes to fixing
bugs in ISE. Probably best to save some nerve, lower your blood pressure, etc. by
choosing a good external editor. Search the forums for suggestions. A lot of people
like emacs, but if you're more used to a Windows look and feel, you might prefer
Notepad++ MED SlickEdit or others.
